Fates Supports/Saizo Beruka
Saizo: [angry expression]...
Beruka: [angry expression]...
Saizo: When you were still taking contracts, did you do most of your jobs alone?
Beruka: Of course. I didn't need help. But after Lady Camilla took me in and enlisted me in the army... As head of a special strike force, I worked with partners more often. Yourself?
Saizo: I do most of my work alone, in secret.
Beruka: *nod* Covert operations are a challenge.
Saizo: Indeed. There was one a few years ago that was especially so. My mission was to infiltrate Nohr and eliminate a duke.
Beruka: ...Go on.
Saizo: The target was a nobleman in a town in Nohr's eastern holdings. Everything that could go wrong with the job did. Even after the target was down, I had nothing but problems. One of the family saw me and screamed curses at me during my entire escape. Then, once I was out of the village...
Saizo: Am I boring you?
Beruka: You're talking about Duke Pohl.
Saizo: How do you know?!
Beruka: So you killed him...
Saizo: What do you mean? Did you know him?
Beruka: No. But it doesn't matter now. It's too late. Forget it...
Saizo: Beruka! Wait! What was that about...?
Saizo: Beruka, about the other day...
Beruka: I told you to forget it.
Saizo: I'm sorry, but I can't. I looked deeper into the incident.
Saizo: Pohl's family hired you. Your contract was Lord Suruga, who gave me the original assignment of Duke Pohl.
Saizo: Lord Suruga's family, in turn, hired me for another job. I killed every member of Pohl's family...
Saizo: Why cover your ears? So you don't have to hear that your assignment was pointless? So you can avoid facing up to it?
Beruka: You're no better.
Saizo: No. I'm not. That's what's unbearable. This chain of vengeance has no ending. It's a vicious cycle. It's a perfect hell...
Beruka: So you get it.
Saizo: But our reason for fighting this war is to break that chain, isn't it? We need to put a stop to this foolish practice of washing blood clean with blood.
Beruka: That's what I'm fighting for, yes.
Saizo: Let's snap the chain of suffering together for a more peaceful world. Can I count on your support for that?
Beruka: I'll try.
Saizo: Beruka. Can we talk?
Beruka: What is it?
Saizo: We swore to fight together to bring peace to this world... But I want you to promise me one other thing.
Beruka: Another vow? The first one was already a tall order.
Saizo: I realize that. You and I have lived lives soaked in blood. Even if we can bring about peace... our lives in this new world will never be like those of our allies.
Beruka: I know.
Saizo: Which is why I want to find somewhere just for the two of us...to make our own peace.
Beruka: Our own peace? What do you mean?
Saizo: Let's settle down together, Beruka. Just you and me. Someplace where we can finally be at rest.
Saizo: Though the world may turn its back on us as killers... I will never abandon you. I promise to stay with you forever.
Beruka: ... I didn't know I could have feelings like this. But I want it... I want to know this peace you're talking about.
Saizo: As long as we're with each other, I think it's within reach.
Beruka: Then I'll stand by your side.
Saizo: Good. No matter who rejects us, we will always have each other.
